Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

You can read more here on Richard D. Young and his association with Lundborg Perfumery as well as his part in the company Young, Ladd & Coffin.

Pharmaceutical Record and Weekly Market Review, Volume 10, 1890:
"Young's perfumes are continually gaining ground in finding new localities and purchasers, and it is claimed that their staying qualities both in business and persistence of odor are a certainty. Lily Bells and Wild Woodbine are new odors of very acceptable and popular character."

The Pharmaceutical Era, Volume 13, 1895:
"The Young Perfumery Co recently organized has no connection with Richard D. Young Perfumery Co, officers are President George Carra gan ,Vice President MR Cook, Treasurer HN Cook, Secretary WP Young, Richard D Young is the manager and the concern has temporary offices at No 144 Franklin Street."

Merck Report, Volume 5, 1896:
"RICHARD D. YOUNG PERFUMERY CO. The Richard D. Young Perfumery Company of No. 148 Duane Street is one of the bestknown concerns of the perfumery trade, and a short time ago, another firm known as the Young Perfumery Company applied to the Supreme Court for the appointment of a receiver. Immediately, a misapprehenslon as to the identity of the two houses arose in the trade, and caused some temporary annoyance to the Richard D. Young Perfumery Company. This concern is widely known and highly respected, and does a large business in all grades of perfumery, it ranks among the leading houses of the trade. As a flourishing commercial house, the Richard D. Young Perfumery Company owes much to the enterprise, and energetic management of its president, Mr A. W. Rice."
